The Boyzone singer moved out of the family home after self-isolation led to arguments with his wife.
Boyzone's Shane Lynch has moved out of his family home after pandemic restrictions led to strained arguments with his wife of 13 years, Sheena White.
Speaking on actor Paul Danan's Morning After podcast, the Dublin singer shared that he and White were "at each other's throats" while self-isolating. Recognising the negative environment, he said he decided to move out of the family home, where his wife resides with their two daughters aged 11 and seven.
He explained that he was not used to spending long periods of time at home due to a consistently strenuous touring schedule.
"I'm usually on the road and for the first time I've spent three months in my house," he said. "All of a sudden I'm at home a lot. You find out things about relationships and it can be very difficult. It can be a struggle.
Lynch hopes that spending some time apart will help rekindle his relationship.
"I pray the longer me and my wife are apart at this moment, during these difficult times, it builds a strongness so when we get back together life will continue to be amazing in the next 15, 20, 30 years. But I don't know God's plan. Just because I love her and I love my children, does that mean there's something new for me in life? I don't know. I have to wait my time."
